Old Fogeys and Angry Young Men: A critique of communitarianism

It is salutary that the great 54 old fogeys and angry young men movement of fathers in the 1990s has not been to reduce working time, nor to desegregate men's and women's incomes and social security benefits (which would mitigate the pressure on poor men to become itinerants, moving between giro drops, their own mothers and the mothers of their children), but to protest against the child support agency's attempts to make them pay for their children. Gershuny's research on british domestic labour and child-care not only shows that time spent with children is increasing among both fathers and mothers, but among those mothers working full-time the time spent with children is actually greater than the time given to children by full -time homemakers three decades ago.

Material Worlds

how do you think the green movement is going to affect fashion as far as fabrics or consumption of clothing are concerned? g e o r g g e o r g i n a equally frustrating is the fact that, because the british fashion business is fairly small fry and because most designers are forced to run their own businesses, they are too competitive.

Law and Injustice: Is there an exit from the postmodern maze?

Furthermore, rights find their fullest expression in the society of private property par excellence, as the superstructural effect of capitalist relations of property and exchange.12 tom campbell also comments that 'it is unlikely that there can be any marxist indulgence for the pretensions of those theories of justice which present themselves as the embodiment of universal truths which have application to any and every stage of historical development'.13 nevertheless, among a number of recent commentators, philip kain suggests that marx was, on the contrary, seeking to transcend equal rights and justice; the justice of the communist society being an ideal which we seek to realise.14 b ut there is another level at which, arguably, marx can still provide a vital emancipatory resource. And an approach to the law based on such theories can hardly be described as critical, much less subversive; it fails to ground a response to the evident failings of the british legal system, and the chasm between law and justice, since it has no evaluative criteria, and no theory of the relationship between law and justice.

GLC R.I.P: Cultural Policies in London 1981-1986

The term 'ethnic arts' - along with such alternatives as 'ethnic minority arts', 'non-british arts', 'multi-ethnic arts' and 'multi-cultural arts' - was introduced by naseem khan in her book the arts britain ignores (1976). In a 1977 document, the labour party placed an equally depoliticized emphasis on their usefulness in 'building up a unified and harmonious neighbourhood' - an approach explicitly rejected by alan tomkins, who argued that social and cultural changes had rendered it irrelevant and even hypocritical.11 the membership of the ethnic arts subcommittee consisted entirely of black cultural practitioners and activists, while the community arts subcommittee on which 60 per cent of the appointees were women - represented the cultural voice of constituencies like the irish; gay, lesbian and feminist activists; the disabled; the elderly and youth groups.

Classical Roots

this model supports bernal's heretical suggestions that egypt had an important impact on the culture of the aegean, and that the idea of the colonisation of greece by egypt and phoenicia is a better way of resolving the paradoxes which have emerged in scholarly orthodoxy in the face of contradictory evidence generated by modern scientific techniques like radio-carbon dating. Whether or not today's radicals choose to proceed along the path mapped out by ja rogers and mournfully sift the silt of european history for the golden traces of a redemptive black presence, we have to have something to say about the profound impact of racism and antisemitism on the supposedly value-free 19th-century scholarship that shaped our understanding of the modern world through its dodgy accounts of the ancient one.

Dream Come True - interview with Joe Slovo

But i think we must also, in examining the balance of forces in south africa, take into account the factor which was in a relative sense missing from the zimbabwean situation, that is, the strength of the political forces on the ground; the organised trade-union movement, the massive strength of the mass democratic movement itself and the extremely high level 15 of political awareness among the majority of blacks. 'we could succeed in what i would call "doing a gdr" on de klerk' yes, and i think an anc south africa which is stable and prosperous will play a very important role in counterbalancing the unequal relationship which exists at the moment between africa as a continent and the industrial world.

The racialisation of space in British cities

the simplified view of space embodied in the inner-city/suburb distinction, one which consigns black people to the inner city has a parallel in the opposition of urban and rural, city and country, with the latter being the home of core english values and the former the source of alien, cosmopolitan values. The northern suburbs, beyond chapeltown, for example, have a significant black middle-class presence, but still the imagined black inner city is fixed in space by the decisions and practices of banks, building societies, the city council and the social control agencies.

Inventing 'African Aids'

8 he notes, in line with past experience in treatment trials in africa, that obtaining informed consent in this context may often involve working with community leaders, whose own interests in co-operating with researchers might be complex.9 but it is a mystification to situate these problems solely in supposedly fixed cultural differences between africa and the west; for this ignores the reality that africa has for centuries been negotiating the logic of western ethics; thus, for example, almost half of all africans (that is to say, about 200 million people) profess some version of christianity.10 further, to mystify differences in social ethics by setting them on the slippery slope of evolutionism (however unconsciously that slippage may occur in western ethical discourse) short-circuits the obvious need to consult not only local political leaders, but the actual peers of western ethicists - african professors and theorists of african social ethics and theology, who can be easily located in their offices at the many major universities in the african states. The chief other published sources of debate on the ethics of aids vaccine trials are: wendy k. mariner and robert c. gallo, 'getting to market: the scientific and legal climate for developing an aids vaccine', law, medicine, and health care, 15, 1-2 (summer 1987), 17-26; nicholas a. christakis, 'responding to a pandemic: international interests in aids control', daedalis, 118, 2 (spring 1989), 113-34; wendy k. mariner, 'why clinical trials of aids vaccines are premature', american journal of public health, 79, 1 (january 1989), 86-91.

To achieve this a united women’s move­ ment is needed, which mobilises women on the basis’ of their own oppression, and which is held together by the political solidarity of women — “sisterhood” — capable of unlocking and overthrowing all of the structures which imprison women. But the american movement is feminism is the political movement now as politically distant from the of women produced by the contra­ american suffrage movement as the diction between men and women.

Adults At Play

A commitment to east european art seems to be prominent; so too african and broadly third-world developments, with an implied attempt to transcend the barriers which isolate them from a self-defining 'first world'; historical figures whose critical recuperation is overdue; promising younger artists, whom the remainder of the british art world traditionally shun. Another might be to accuse the modern art museum of having neutered and sanitised 'radical' art by the simple act of collecting and displaying it.

Despite the near universal perception of jazz as something that black people do, for all the lip service paid to equality and the acknowledged innovators, the white british jazz world could, and can still, be shamefully antipathetic to the wider black presence.

Festivals Of The Oppressed

In his remarkable book theatre of the oppressed, the latin american theatre-maker augusto boal contrasts three dramaturgies: the aristotelian model in which the spectator passively delegates power to the dramatic character, so that the latter may act and think for him; the brechtian theatre of the enlightened vanguard, in which the spectator does not delegate his or her power to think, but still gives up the right to act; and boal's own 'poetics of the oppressed', in which the spectator no longer delegates either power to the character, but exercises them both. But against barker's call for the reassertion of the tragic principle in theatre - a form which he acknowledges is and will remain a minority, indeed elitist interest - a popular playwright like john mcgrath would reassert the old '60s principle of theatre based round the real and palpable solidarities of class.2 mcgrath is a highly committed playmaker who has made considerable personal sacrifices in career terms in order to pursue the creation of a mass, popular audience for socialist theatre.

Reagan's American Dream

Beyond that, the party is riven with conflict among these tendencies: conservative southern democrats; neo-conservative democrats who identify with the policies of the late senator henry jackson of washington, an advocate of domestic welfare spending and extensive military spending; a centrist liberalism represented by walter mondale; a 'neoliberal' current symbolised in various forms by former governor jerry brown of what leftists and liberals did not predict was that the recession would be followed by a sustained recovery california and senator gary hart of colorado; and several different left tendencies, expressed in jesse jackson's campaign for the democratic presidential nomination, the feminist movement, and sections of the trade unions. But he has taken major steps toward building a new consensus very different from the old democratic consensus. even after giving due weight to republican money and organisation, democratic disorder, and reagan's appeal, there is much left to explain in the popularity of an administration which many predicted would rouse massive popular opposition or fall of its own weight.
